Likeable Blog Justified!

Blog Posts

The Challenge: You have three hundred words to justify the existence of your favorite person, place, or thing. Failure to convince will result in it vanishing without a trace. Go!

Our favorite is our Blog! Here we go justifying the existence of Sia Positive. 🙂

Our previous post What’s so special about 1337 was a poem in response to Writing Prompt: Blogging 101 that expressed who we are and why we are here in WordPress. Just minutes before we came across this writing prompt, there was a notification saying we’ve received 1337 likes in our blog! This number left us scratching our head and we were motivated to come up with a post hoping to get answers to our question about this special number. We wondered, how many bloggers are aware of the significance of 1337? Guess what? No answers!

What next? You’re right! Google!

So we decided to Google. And what a coincidence! The Daily Post came up with yet another prompt, Do or Die! Could there be any better way to link this current post to this prompt? So, here we are justifying the existence of our blog. We are sure Sia Positive will not vanish but exist!

We came across several interpretations for 1337. But what we thought could be best related to this blogging world goes as follows:

Angel Number 1337 is a message of ‘congratulations’ from your angels and the Ascended Masters, as you have chosen the right course of action and are travelling well along your life path. Your clear connection with the angels, Archangels and Ascended Masters is ensuring a strong channel of communication and you are receiving Divine guidance every step of the way. Call upon the angels whenever you feel the need for help and support. You are encouraged to continue on your current path as the angels and Ascended Masters support you in your quest. 

Angel Number 1337 is a message from your angels that you are being commended and applauded for your efforts as your successes are inspiring and uplifting and you are helping and teaching others by being a positive example for others to follow.  You have listened to and heeded the guidance from the angels and are successfully serving your Divine life purpose and soul mission with wisdom, love, persistence and enthusiasm.  Allow the flow of positive abundance to shower down upon you as your creative energies have been activated and you are being asked to express yourself with joy and enthusiasm.

Angel Number 1337 indicates that your positive expectations, prayers and visualizations have set you on your course and ‘right’ life path.  Your angels ask that you keep up the great work and keep affirming positive outcomes.

So, are you convinced? 🙂

Depth of Life

Mountain n river- Bageshwar

 Dark is the absence of light,

Hate is the absence of love,

Death is the absence of life.

Rules and laws are made by us,

Situations change but rules never change!

Is it fair enough?

We punish the wrong and reward the right,

With the hope that wrong never prevail;

How far is this right?

If the world has changed,

Why do we still talk of change!

If we all are sinners, then who are we to judge?

We are not prisoners;

We do not need rules to live,

Then why can’t we take a risk,

And think positive!

Arrest hatred, arrest the furious mind,

Punish jealousy and greed,

Leave the negative behind.

Right or wrong, good or bad,

Are we not aware?

Feel the depth of life, far and wide;

Let peace prevail worldwide.

Depth of Field

In this post we share some of our photographs that we think would best fit The Daily Post Weekly Photo Challenge: Depth. We have chosen photographs that explains the Depth of Field.

In photography, Depth of Field (DoF) refers to the range of distance that appears acceptably sharp. In some cases, we may have the entire image sharp. In other cases, a small DOF may be more effective, emphasizing the subject while de-emphasizing the foreground and background. In cinematography, a large DOF is often called deep focus, and a small DOF is often called shallow focus.

The Irony

Think Simple

This post is in response to Weekly Writing Challenge: Ice, Water, Steam.

The Challenge: For this week’s writing challenge, take on the theme of H2O. Just like water is still water, whether it’s solid, liquid, or gaseous, you are still yourself, whether you’re in the middle of a career change or identity shift. Hey, even dying your hair pink is just a different variation of you.

Whether we are rich or poor, we are what we think. Simple living is not what matters, simple thinking does.

“Simple living and high thinking” is a common adage we have been living with, right from our childhood. It is simple to understand, isn’t it? Live a simple life with the basic needs, have high aims in life and be happy.

What we perceived then and what we perceive now transmit vibes that are poles apart.

The irony: Everything is in the mind. The higher we think, the higher our hopes and expectations, and higher soars our greed. This ultimately lands one into a pit full of competition, jealousy and revenge. Over the years, experience explained, what actually matters is ‘think simple’.

So…

Simplicity is in the mind, not lifestyle,

Generosity is a quality divine;

Live your dreams, you have a lifetime;

Be human, spread the sunshine.

Good or bad is in the heart,

Show gratitude for what you’re bestowed;

How you live is a work of art;

Clean the soul for a heavenly abode.

Rich or poor, is in the mind,

If you are alive, you’ve to strive;

Think simple and just be kind,

If you’ve money, help others to survive.

Is it convincing?

It’s our dreams we try to connect!

Simple living and high thinking,

Does it make a man perfect?

Life Goes On…

Food for thought: When was the last time you were ready to throw in the proverbial towel? Did you end up letting go, or decided to fight on anyway?

Whether we decide to let go or fight back; what matters is feel comfortable; because the soul is important, not the problem.

Set the mind free! 

IMG_1675

There cannot be just one answer to different questions. Similarly, the problems we encounter do not come with just one solution. At times, we need to fight back; while at other times we need to just let it go! If fighting back does not land us in comfortable situation, there is no other option but to just let it go!

There have been several instances in our life when, if we let go the problem, the solution seems to be just ahead of us; which otherwise was not visible when we were trying to fight back. That short break provides the needed energy and positive energy to fight back!

Fight back with positive energy!

IMG_1372

Throw in the towel is a time when time needs to be given time. Time heals all pain and adversity. “Do not quit” would be too harsh on the heart and soul; if quitting is what makes us feel good! How else can we open doors to new opportunities if we never quit?

In any case, whether we let it go or decide to fight back, the fuel that keeps us moving is never regret. That calls for saying; we have to trust our decisions and keep the faith. There must have been some reason behind that decision we took. If Plan A didn’t work, there is always a Plan B. Create as many plans as we see fit!  But just move on. This is how we learn. And living is a learning experience.

This post is in response to  The Daily Post: Enough is Enough

Don’t Impress! Express!

Below are some of the photographs we thought of sharing with our fellow bloggers. Check what they have to express!

This is a challenge before us, to show what “express yourself” mean to us. This post is in response to The Daily Post Photo Challenge: Express Yourself.

We love to capture different moments in our life and find it exciting to express our thoughts through these random clicks. We made an attempt to express our journey of life through these photographs. So, fasten your seat belts and enjoy this journey through our head and heart ! 🙂

1. Hunt for truth:

The oar as seen immersed in water has something to say!

Do not believe what you hear, do not believe what you see,

A smile on your face may not mean you’re free;

The actions we take are the reactions we face,

Do not judge, the truth lies beneath;

This is what we believe.

2. Surprises matter

IMG_1254

Life is full of surprises, good or bad;

Never stop learning, happy or sad.

3. Solve problems

When faced with problems, do not complain;

Look for alternative solutions, take a concrete decision.

4. Plan with open mind

IMG_0977

Dream and plan with an open mind,

Follow the step you’ve designed;

If plans begin to fail, do not sigh;

The open mind will help you to fly! 

5. Mould to fit

IMG_0989
Millipede

Yesterday is history, tomorrow a mystery;

Mould to fit today, shape your destiny.

6. Adventure calling

IMG_1363

Up and down, far or near;

Live your dreams, don’t you fear.

7. Free- flowing

IMG_0984

Life is not a race, reflect and see,

Be good, humanity is the key;

Among the masses you may be known,

But it takes everything to stand alone.

8. Emotional

IMG_1698

One, two, three, four, five;

Ready to taste the flavors of life.

Six, seven, eight, nine, ten;

Here and there we fall, but rise again.

The Flower Band

DSC_4392

Few months back, we visited a Nursery to purchase some plants for our small but sweet garden. While we were looking around, this flower just happened to catch our attention. This amazingly beautiful flower looked somewhat like a ‘Rakhi’. For those who are not aware, Rakhi is a band tied by sisters on the wrist of their brothers on the occasion of Raksha Bandhan.

We were utterly amazed to see a real Rakhi! As told to us by the florist, the local name of this flower is “Rakhi Bail”. 

We found this to be the perfect picture for Jennifer Nicholewells’ One word photo challenge: Indigo.

JUST ONE MOMENT

This post is part of The Daily Post: Two Right Feet

What are the things you need to do within 30 minutes of waking up to ensure your day gets off on the right foot? What happened the last time you didn’t do one of these things?

IMG_4535

30 minutes or 15 minutes,

Will make no difference;

Wake up feeling good,

The day will give you preference.

Open your eyes, wear that smile,

Thank the Lord for keeping you alive;

Left foot or right, never worry!

Go slow and steady, do not hurry. 

Wake up happy, it’s another new day;

Do not hesitate to make a demand,

And the genie will say,

“Your wish is my command”.

If daily routines make you sick,

Relax, let time play the trick;

Discover the hidden treasure,

The ‘feel good’ moment will give you real pleasure.

The Argument

This was a post we shared few days back in response to The Daily Post: Bone of Contention. We feel it fits well for today’s prompt: Agree to Disagree. This reblog is for those who missed it. 🙂

Sia Positive

DSC_4532

When there is disagreement or difference of opinion, there is controversy; and because there is controversy, change persists. We have seen childhood, youth and adulthood. And now we are experiencing parenthood. Just as our life cycle has been through different phases, so have our thoughts. Here are few of the cases, what we were taught to believe when we were young. What we were taught was not wrong; but they are not right either. At least, this is what we believe today. Our views on the same issues have undergone drastic changes. For good or bad, if you ask; we would say, its not the last! We still have miles to go before we sleep. 🙂

So, here are those issues, that we agree to disagree.

We were taught: Always keep good company.  A man is known by the company he keeps.

We believe: No company is good or bad
